A Glass of Chianti

Such a disappointment

I don't think there's been a bigger let-down in television since Texas Ranch House (the newest entry in the PBS House series of pseudo-historical reality TV). I was hoping for something like Frontier House with a couple of families and with the addition of a mini-cattle war. What I got was The Clunes II crossed with the feminist bent of the worst parts of Colonial House.

Had they advertised this as what it is - The Cooks' dress-up summer vacation - I wouldn't be so angry. As it is: Worst. PBS. Reality. TV. Show. Ever.
